Last Tuesday, USA’s Yngling team of Carol Cronin (Jamestown, R.I.), Liz
Filter (Stevensville, Md.) and Nancy Haberland (Annapolis, Md.) were chosen
to star in a segment with Al Roker on the Today Show. The setting was the
USA House, where the U.S. Olympic Committee entertains VIPs, administrators
and athletes in Athens. Liz Filter took the lead in “giving Roker a tour,”
and Roker asked questions about the team while the tour was underway. The
USA House is in downtown Athens, far away from the Agios Kosmas Sailing
Center in Glyfada, where the sailing events have taken place. Its balcony
looks out over the Acropolis.
